Answer: Depends on what your definition of ‘wonderful’ is?
When we hear, “God has a wonderful plan for your life.”…we assume this to mean, from OUR perspective….If we would believe in His Sovereignty, and that He does indeed have a pre-ordained purpose, then accordingly, everything He brings to bear in our lives in order to achieve His purpose, must then therefore be “wonderful”…even if only recognized by Him.
I often hear people pray to God to “use me.” What they really mean is “use me for things I want to be used for,” like bringing people to Christ or having money to give to missions or praying for someone else’s misery.
None of us ever think “use me” is going to result in anything we don’t like, because… well… God just wouldn’t do that, right? But Jesus didn’t live a happy-go-lucky kind of life, so why do we think we get to? Look at how many times Paul was beaten and imprisoned for doing God’s will. God was “using him” and the results weren’t pretty from a worldly viewpoint, but were beautiful from an eternal perspective.
Very well put
